Best Netbook Of The Year?

We only have 3 more months to the end of 2010. This year, we have seen lots of new netbook model popping up, and many of them has added (or will be adding) the dual core Intel Atom processor and Nvidia ION 2 graphics to their specs. Netbooks are no longer a device used merely for Web browsing and Internet application which it was originally designed for. So which is the best netbook of 2010? Some reviewers say it’s the Eee PC 1215N, but I think it’s still too early to say now as we are yet to see the performance of the Acer Aspire One D255 and the Asus Eee PC 1015N which will be released in the next 1 to 2 months. Both models will feature the new Intel Atom D550 CPU and the 1015PN will even be running ION 2. It will be interesting to see how these 2 new models compared to the others.


Asus Eee PC 1215N Reviewed – Best Netbook On The Market?

The much awaited Asus Eee PC 1215N netbook finally landed in the U.S. Why is this netbook such a big deal? Because it’s the first netbook to feature the Nvidia ION 2 graphic chip with Optimus technology which helps to save battery power by automatically switch between integrated and discrete GPU. So when play a 1080p video which require lots of graphic processing power, the Optimus will automatically turn on the ION graphic; while when doing normal computing tasks, the Optimus is smart enough to turn of the discrete GPU and just make use of the integrated graphic chip.

With a powerful dual core processor, Nvidia ION 2 graphic, and the Optimus technology, what you will get is a powerful yet energy saving netbook. According to review, this netbook can last for nearly 6 hours under normal usage, and the system performance beats every other netbooks on the market.
